Reviewed roast turkey with truffle butter

Dec 4, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

After reading all the 5 star reviews, I was expecting an amazing tasting turkey. It was just okay. Didn't taste the truffle flavor. I won't be making this again. I have better recipes that deliver exceptional results.

I loved this. Super easy to make. Onions were done under 20 minutes with minimal stirring. The rest of the recipe was a breeze. I added all the options. Will definitely make again.

Amazingly, an easy and delicious way to cook crispy skinned salmon. The sauce is equally delicious. Will make again.

This is the second recipe I've used from this site. The first was Ina Garten's which uses truffled butter. I definitely prefer this one. I believe the oil has a more pronounced flavor. Very delicious. I merely drizzled the oil before serving. I used a potato ricer because I prefer the texture. Will make again.

This is a seriously good recipe. I used thawed frozen spinach which I squeezed dried with a potato ricer. Super quick and easy. Leaves spinach very dry. Great accompaniment to roasted tenderloin. Will make again.

This an amazing sauce. Great accompaniment to roasted tenderloin. My guests loved it. I just had to keep an eye on the reducing cream to keep it from boiling over. Mine was reduced and thick in 40 minutes. Have some left and will use it with pasta and add pears and walnuts. Will make again.

So easy and can be made with 1lb of mushrooms. I added extra garlic, used beef stock, shallots and penne as that's what I had. Next time, I will use rosemary and roasted garlic. I've made this many times now and I soak .5oz dried porcini in beef stock with 2tsp of soy sauce because I love the way it complements the mushroom stock. Also, I like s"

Fabulous way to cook shrimp. They come out so tasty. I marinate the shrimp with a teaspoon of Spanish hot paprika and freshly crushed garlic to taste. Have yet to make the dressing as I like aioli for a dipping sauce."

I subbed premade polenta the kind that comes in a sausage-like roll for the topping. Cut it into 12 equal rounds. I baked for 30 minutes in a preheated 375 oven. Quick and tasty for a weeknight meal.""

Easy recipe with delicious results. I couldn't follow exactly because I was missing sour cream. Instead I used Greek yogurt. I'm sure the sour cream would have been better, though. I couldn't resist the addition of bacon, as per other reviewers. I used a 12 oz bag of broccoli and cauliflower that you find in the fresh vegetable aisle. Just steam...

I loved this recipe! It came out unctuous and delicious. Loved the addition of the lemon zest. It gave it a bright flavor. I made mine using Cook's Illustrated technique for "almost hands free" risotto, as I love risotto but loathe the constant stirring. I couldn't find fennel so left it out, but I bet it would have been even better. Ina uses fro...

OMG! Love this recipe. So easy. I forgot to add the fresh herbs, but it was still great. I used spaghetti by Rustichella d'Abruzzo because I think this is an amazing brand and takes pasta dishes to another level. Will make this again and again."

I've been wanting to try this for so long. I followed the recipe exactly as written. I have to say it really didn't have that pronounced truffle flavor I love. Also, had to adjust the salt as I found it a little bland. I added some truffle salt and truffle oil to finish. I think next time I will grate the cheese and incorporate throughout. I'll try...

This was delicious. I subbed dark brown sugar for the muscovado. I tried to do the egg wash, but it didn't spread without disturbing the crust, so I quit that. Next time, I will leave that step out. Crust was delicious. I prepared mine in an 11" tart pan because I didn't have the 10" pie plate. It fit beautifully and the fluted edge made it more attractive....

This is so delicious. I added an extra egg yolk and 1/2 cup more cream. I also bought some artisanally made imported linguine which made it that much more special. Very rich...yum. Just the way we like it.

This is a delicious cake, but it doesn't have enough spice for me. I think I will try adding some ginger and/or nutmeg. I purposely bought new spices for the season and although we loved it, I felt it could be better. Still, very lovely and moist.
